Democrats: Stand by your woman Many Democrats seem to be inclined to try to make a problem of Gillibrand's synchronistic moment. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that she's a woman and she's talking about a subject many people find difficult to talk about frankly and publicly -- sexual harassment.

A gift to America from the U.S. Mint To celebrate the 225th anniversary of its founding, the Mint has initiated a series of gold coins depicting Lady Liberty as different ethnicities. Following the first symbolic African-American woman to grace a United States coin, will come Asian-American, Hispanic-American, and Indian-American figures, to reflect "the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States," the Mint said. How did he miss that?

A one-sided-story: Trump must go This is a time of serious unrest in America, stoked by the divisive language and actions of Donald Trump and those who advise and enable him. There is no other side to that story. He was elected on a campaign built on lies, bigotry and bullying. The Republican Party allowed it. They continue to allow him to shred the fabric of this nation. They own him even though he is not one of them. That is the price of silence on fascism.

Why won't McCain take on Trump? By not challenging Trump with actions as well as words, McCain leaves himself open to criticism that, while he may be prone to occasional flashes of anger, he's not willing to risk losing whatever standing, power, and influence he may have within his party by engaging in an all-out fight with the president based on principle.
